I Wanna Slip Back

I wanted to bloom
in the lap of green.
Intolerable it is to
stay as unseen!

I lift up my head
and cast my look.
I see the glum shade,
thru the mirror of brook.

No longer, I stay there,
where joys I lack.
To sleep, in the deep,
I wanna slip back.

    Beautiful poem Neela. Beautiful way you have compared nature to life.
    This poem left me wondered...
    Where I wanna slip back
    Is it to the lap of green earth, which is full of joy...
    or looking for joy thru the mirror of brook....Loved reading.. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
